Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 38 - Celebration

Hello everyone,
I have had a very busy and stressful week, my Mum had a fall on Sunday so I stayed with them for an overnight stay on Monday night to give Dad a rest from helping her get up and about. I came home late Tuesday and started coughing and now have the full on cold....I can't complain to much though as my Sister has been in hospital all week having tests and hopefully she is on the road to recovery.

On a good note I did get to see my Great Nephew Lorenzo he is such a gorgeous little baby and over at Cheery Lynn this week, is the challenge Celebration. So instead of making a card or project I decided to do a layout for my album, I seem to have heaps of cards and wanted to scrapbook for a change. 

The Cheery Lynn Dies I used are 
Square Scalloped Stacker's Nesting Dies XL-2
Ultimate Dimensional Dies Emboss & Die Cut Buttons #2 set 14 D 102

This is what I call a Celebration a brand new Baby being born.
I have actually used the Square Scalloped Stacker Dies to cut out my photos,
 as well as the matting behind them.
I just love this new Mini Flourish, it just cuts out the delicate leaves and vines so easily.
A close up of the Flourish and the new Lace Corner Deco die they come in a pack of 3 and they are perfect for a baby/boy page layout or card.
Do you like my Star and Circle Buttons they cut and emboss at the same time.
I would love to get the whole Cheery Lynn Alphabet Letters but in the meantime I am using some of my old stock of Chipboard letters.

I got a couple of new dies last week from Mandy at Scrappy-go-Lucky, head on over to her store as she is having a sale on Cheery Lynn Dies to make way for some new ones.
I am sure if  Mandy hasn't got the Cheery Lynn Dies in stock that your looking for she would be only to happy to get them for you.

Thanks once again to the Cheery Lynn Design Team for picking me in there top 3 for the White on White Challenge 37 it was for my Umbrella.

Until next time Shelley
